Reminder to check your calendar

Staff from our waste contractor Veolia have been handing out leaflets all week to help remind people about the forthcoming changes to waste collections in Shrewsbury and across Shropshire. 

The lads from the local Shrewsbury depot Dave Thomas, Mark Redmond and Gary Clarke (pictured above) have been out and about helping to spread the word.  The message is simple - double check your waste collection calendar (or visit our online bin day finder because everyone will be impacted by the day changes.  

With back-to-back bank holidays around Christmas we have completely re-jigged the collection schedule.  So the day of the week on which your refuse, recycling / garden waste is collected will be different to normal. 

As part of the ongoing campaign to remind residents to recycle more this Christmas the staff have also made this seasonal video to help remind everyone to please check your calendar and dont get caught out this Christmas.
